There’s nothing more special than the bond between a child and their dog. Every kid should grow up with a dog — they’re not only loving companions but they’re also very protective of their owners, always willing to put themselves on the line when there’s danger.
That’s what one tiny but very brave proved this week, after she defended her 10-year-old owner from a coyote, sustaining injuries in the process.
Macy is a six-year-old Yorkie mix who lives with her owner Dorothy Kwan and her family in Scarborough, Toronto.
Recently, Macy was out for a walk with the family’s 10-year-old daughter — and things took a drastic turn when the girl came face-to-face with a wild coyote.
But amazingly, the little dog stepped up to be a hero, facing off with the coyote to protect her owner.
